I’m Back On Top Of The Hill

Hi dear friends, I’m trying to answer the photo prompt/challenge from Weekly Prompts. this new computer set-up isn’t going too well, but please don’t tell my brother, who came down from Black Hill in Ballarat and spent 4 hours on my computer trying to set-up all the appts for me

, and really he’s done a wonderful job. So from my high up on my perch here on top of Bell Post, I shall post these lovely pic’s of Geelong’sΒ  Botanical Gardens that I took on Tuesday, which is on top of a hill in the Eastern Gardens over looking our picturesque Corio Bay.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    Are you still working on the temporary machine or have you got the old one back?
